The weather is getting colder in Savage and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a great deal of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners stating that they smell something when their air conditioner turns on for the first time in a while. It’s likely that your air conditioner hasn’t been running for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you start your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of concern and the smell will usually be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a bit, please inform one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
Your air conditioner is going to be an important part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our professionals will be sure your system is running securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning smell.
